I'm going to post this over in the buy/sell as well but first I thought I'd see if anyone knows what the heck you call it - the bracket that connects the flex line to the two rear hard lines on an 8.8 live axle. I've scoured the Internet looking for one and can't seem to find it.
Or, if you happen to have the part I'm looking for and want to part with, let me know...but, first, tell what the damn things is called. It's driving me crazy.

That is for JUST the hose, it will not include the upper frame bracket that is normally riveted to the frame, as seen in the above photo.
I HIGHLY recommend the Disc Brakes-R-Us conversion hose, which is what I used. It is longer and doesn't use the funky end fitting at the frame, but instead a standard brake line fitting that works with the universal bolt/rivet on line tabs as shown in the first photo.
If you have rear discs why not just run two hoses from the frame to the caliper just like the front? It has been done this way since 1994 on Mustangs.
They wern't done that way on my 94GT, but your suggestion is still a good one. My 94 donor had the single flex line from the body to the axle and then a hard line across the axle then back to flex lines at each disc brake caliper. If anyone is looking in the junk yard for that flex line bracket, they can also include 94 cars in their search. Personally if I didn't already have the donor flex line and bracket, I wouldn't try to get them because the Mustang bracket is too short anyway (at least my 94 one was). I had to make a bracket extension to get my donor bracket to work and allow the rearend to reach full droop. The Disc brakes 'r us is one possible solution if the line is long enough and Mark's suggestion of 2 lines is a good one too.
